For the first 3 nights of our stay, Luis Miguel sent us to the Casa Particular upstairs (Alina y Vicente), without telling us that it was a different Casa Particular. Moreover, I suspect that Luis intended for us to believe it was the same one. This is not at all obvious, as they share the same entrance-way. I remember being quite surprised that our room didn't match the expectation I had from trip advisor and other reviews. On the 1st morning Luis said we were to move downstairs after the 3rd day, which we thought odd at the time, and then it dawned on us what had happened. Come the 3rd day, we reminded Luis that we'd like to move downstairs, but oddly Luis now persuaded us not to! I don't know why he suddenly changed his mind, maybe the owners of the upstairs Casa persuaded Luis that they wanted to keep our custom. We insisted though, and we were then moved downstairs, into Luis's Casa. What a difference! The problem is, for the next few days we sensed some distance from Luis, and also a bit of tension, which we thought was a shame. Maybe he was just embarrassed, or worried we were annoyed with him, which we weren't. However, the last day he relaxed, and we left on good terms. He gave us a hug when we left, and said he hoped we would leave good comments for him! Cheeky!
I have to say, Luis's casa is very good, and I agree with all previous comments about it. I regret that we stayed in a different casa for the 1st 3 nights, as it didn't come close to matching the quality of Luis's casa, yet we paid the same amount for it. Also, we spent many hours researching and reading reviews of Casas before we left, so we feel some of that time was wasted really.
I would like to make another point. On the main website, http://www.cuba-junky.com/havana/casa-luismiguel.htm there are some inaccuracies. On our 1st 3 nights we didn't have a private bathroom (although that was a different Casa). Luis's Casa doesn't have an independent entrance - you have to ring the bell to get in. Once the bell didn't work, and another time we pressed it repeatedly and had to wait about 5 minutes before being let in. There is a fridge, but no mini-bar. There are no double beds.
My advice to any future guest - if you're booked to stay with Luis Miguel, his casa is on the ground floor only, so make sure you stay on the ground floor! The Casa upstairs looks like what you might expect from the exterior. Luis's Casa is in a different league.
